Trevor Lawrence Stats:
He is also ranked 33/37 out of QBs this year by PFF if that means anything to any of you. What can Giants fans learn from Trevor Lawrence's rookie year? Drafting a supremely talented quarterback will not suddenly turn the team into a winner. The desire to replace the quarterback after every losing season is rooted in the desire for instant gratification. Naturally, fans desire to win now, so they rationalize that if they pick a QB who is "the guy" or a "franchise QB" then he will "elevate" the awful supporting cast and turn the horrendous roster into a winner overnight. This distorted line of thinking is rooted in clichés and myths rather than observations based on empirical evidence. Am I saying that the Jaguars should have passed on Trevor Lawrence? Of course not. Yes, you absolutely should pick a generational talent(like Lawrence is supposed to be) if they come along, but you do not make the fringe QB pick(i.e. Daniel Jones) without a serviceable supporting cast in place. This roster has innumerable holes and there are no clear cut generational talents(like a Trevor Lawrence) among the quarterbacks of this draft class. Those fans who are clamoring for Kenny Pickett or Matt Corral should look at Trevor Lawrence and consider whether that would truly be a wise move.
